    I booked one ticket from Hangzhou to Shanghai through this company. I received the confirmation email and collected the paper ticket with my passport and the ticket pickup number. Everything worked perfectly, although I cannot speak Chinese.

    We took the train at very early morning, there are still many canteens on service at Shanghai hongqiao railway station, and we had a good breakfast there. Very impressive.

    I booked two second class seats from Guangzhou to Changsha with TravelChinaGuide. They offered great service and make extra work regarding our travel ID issue and train station information. I do appreciate their help!

    Had a booking with you December last year, your staff is very nice. Thank you very much for your quick answer and your advices. The requirements for the visa became more severe, and thanks to your official invoice of my train booking, I was able to fill in the form with all the necessary data. Therefore I am very grateful to your kind help. Thank you.

    Last month, we went to China. It is beautiful country. Chinese people are friendly. We took the high speed train from HK to Guangzhou. The train stations are clean. There are English signs in the train stations, we just followed the signs to take the train. Everything went smoothly.

    I like your way of doing business. You’ve done a great job. Responsive and efficient. I will definitely contact you to do more train bookings next time I travel in China.

    Thanks for your refund. We are glad that you have contacted the hotel staff finally and cancelled our unused tickets successfully. We received the refund via Wechat already. I will contact you in future if we have the new travel plan.

    When I was researching details about our trip to China i heard that you had to book train tickets very far in advance, otherwise, the tickets could be sold out! I submitted my orders and Christina replied me very quickly, she explained to me that the tickets could be booked and issued 30 days in advance and then I received the confirmation just on that expected date. So amazing.

    I travelled by train in China during the very peak season, before they New Year holiday, we were so lucky to have all our tickets booked with TravelChinaGuide. Several folks I've met at places have lamented not buying tickets in advance and being unable to get the tickets on the spot. So, advanced booking is very necessary when you plan a train trip in China, and booking with TravelChinaGuide is highly recommended.
